PETA Pack Push-Up Challenge FAQ
How do I take part?
To take part, simply sign up and we’ll send you a welcome e-mail with the next steps, which include setting up a Facebook or JustGiving page, choosing your fundraising target, and sharing your challenge with your friends and family. Then, it’s time to get moving!
Is there a registration fee?
No! As this is a virtual event, it’s completely FREE to take part. But we encourage you to raise as much as possible to benefit PETA’s work for animals.
If you raise £25 or more, you’ll receive a PETA Pack medal as a thank-you gift. If you raise £50 or more, you’ll get the medal PLUS a stylish PETA Pack sports T-shirt.
When does the event take place?
The event runs throughout June, and you can choose a daily movement target to complete at your own pace, in your own time, throughout the month.
What activities can I do?
You can choose any supported bodyweight movement for the challenge – push-ups, knee push-ups, wall push-ups, planks, and knee planks are a great selection of exercises for all physical abilities. Perhaps you’d like to improve your core strength and decide to complete a 30-second plank every day throughout June. Or, if you’re a beginner at push-ups, you might set a target of five per day until the end of the month. All abilities are welcome, and anyone can participate as long as you track your progress on your fundraising page!
Where do I do it?
You can complete your chosen movement anywhere you like, as long as you keep yourself and others safe. We recommend somewhere with a soft surface, like a living room carpet or on top of a yoga mat.
Can we take part as a team?
Absolutely! Team challenges are a great way to have fun with your friends, and having the support of a team can go a long way towards helping you smash your fundraising target and complete your challenge.
You can either split a total target between team members or each complete your own targets.
How do I fundraise?
Once you’ve set up your page and chosen a fundraising target, spread the word. Remember to tell your friends and family why you’re taking on the challenge and how much it means to you.
We’ll be providing fundraising tips throughout the challenge, but please do check out our free guide for fundraising tips, tricks, ideas, and much more.
How much should I raise?
You can raise however much you like! Remember: the more you raise, the more you’ll be boosting our effective campaigns to establish and protect the rights of all animals. And we have some special thank-you gifts in store:
- Raise £25 or more and we’ll send you a PETA Pack medal.
- Raise £50 or more to get the medal AND your very own exclusive PETA Pack sports T-shirt.
How do I pay my funds to PETA?
Money raised through Facebook or JustGiving will automatically be transferred to PETA, so you don’t need to do anything. If you raise funds in another way, drop us an e-mail at [email protected] and we’ll be happy to help.
I have reduced mobility – can I still take part?
Absolutely. We encourage everyone to take part and choose a movement appropriate for your ability. Or, if you’d prefer to share the load, consider forming a team by inviting friends to join you and splitting the target among you.
What happens if I signed up but can no longer take part?
If for any reason you’re no longer able to take part in the PETA Pack Push-Up Challenge, please get in touch with us at [email protected].
